Email provider recommendations anyone? I'm thinking about getting a dedicated (and paid) email-only provider (primarily because I find it creepy that my provider does not support 2FA to protect against getting locked out of my own email account). Currently contemplating posteo.net, but super happy about other ideas or general thoughts on the topic! #email #followerpower
@wendy hey thanks - definitely thumbs up for coop! in this case i'd first need to up my language game though. :)
@pixouls very much so :) thanks a lot!
@pixouls i'm also in the habit of periodically deleting my posts btw. ;) (maybe i should mention that on my profile as well hehe)
@freebliss I’ve been using Posteo for around 8 years now and never had any issues, their support is super helpful as well. However I am currently migrating to mailbox.org - they have similar privacy policies and such, but they offer much more features than Posteo, the most important imo being custom domains and server-side encryption. Posteo’s offering hasn’t changed at all during all this time, mailbox.org seems to try to keep up with current security and privacy developments.
@morph uh that looks nice too! i was somewhat considering the absence of custom domain support as a positive thing too (as in: relieves me of the vanity choice i have to make, and it's kinda classic and down to earth to just have the service provider domain too :D), but thinking about migrating, having the option to transparently migrate from provider to provider in the future sounds like a very, very good point to consider actually. thanks a lot for putting that back on the table!
@exstral cool thanks a lot for sharing your experience!
@freebliss Using Runbox for ca 1.5 years and quite happy about it. Don't know about 2FA, and the web app is a bit slow compared to gmail, but I prefer to use Thunderbird anyways.
@eriknatanael nice - haven't see
n them yet, thanks for this suggestion!
@ademalsasa thank you for the suggestions and for boosting - lots of great alternatives streaming in! :)
@freebliss what a honest comment I love that. You are welcome, friend!
@joaopinheiro Ooh thanks a lot! Migadu is a fantastic suggestion - I really like their alternative approach and how honest and down to earth they are about their business!
@freebliss mailbox.org offers 2FA.
@selea Love their different approach, thanks for the recommendation! :)
@freebliss ProtonMail, Tutanota, Posteo
@freebliss a happy maibox.org over here!
@freebliss Hey.com . They've done some really innovative work in the areas of usability and privacy.
@freebliss I use Posteo and it's very nice.
@freebliss protonmail is nice. They have support for encryption.
Disroot or RiseUp if you want lots of privacy.
Posteo and Dismail in second tier.
Elude is supposed to be good.
Protonmail isn't as private as it could be, they have even admitted themselves in their privacy statements and when interviewed that there are things that will have to change.
@joaopinheiro @freebliss they are transparent is all. They use a tool for analytics and say so in their policy, so you can imagine they can collect some info on the user and they are open about it. They can also collect information from emails and they are transparent about it. They promise that they do not use the information. That is the main deal the last time I read about it. And of course there is a captcha to sign up...
@freebliss Also using Migadu, very happy and works well for my basic needs.
Very happy with mailbox.com
